Mantra Meditation for Strength + Protection Ep009
Invoke heavy-duty divine protection, strength, and power. This mantra meditation has helped me reclaim my voice and help me speak my truth, it can also support you in sharpening your discernment, help you see and honor your boundaries, experience a deeper level of powerful, radical self-love, boosting your own innate feelings of self-worth, knowing your value and overflowing your fullness without feeling like you need to shrink, hide, or run away. If there’s anything happening in your life that you feel afraid to face or not strong enough to deal with, this mantra helps invoke a feeling of safety and supports all aspects of strengthening your inner sense of resilience. This mantra can be used to eliminate sorrow, obstacles and barriers. It has an energy that helps overcome opposition and grants self-control and self-discipline. Dum is a seed sound that amplifies this mantra connecting us to the feminine aspect of solar energy. Durga is the head of the divine army riding a lion which projects the energy of the protective form of the divine mother who saves us from difficulties. On a physical health level, Ayurveda says this mantra can strengthen the digestive fire and can be used to burn away toxins (ama) working at the tissue level. It also neutralizes any negative force projected at us, creating a protective shield, increasing self-confidence, reducing insecurity or feelings of lack of self-worth. Commonly used to overcome challenges and dreadful circumstances, but can also be used to imbue blessings of creativity and good fortune.

Mantra Meditation for Pure Love Ep007
Sometimes when we feel lonely, we're craving connection, we feel lack and scarcity of love. What if you could just flip the script not just intellectually but viscerally and tap into an infinite wellspring of love and then overflow that love unto others and into important areas of your life? Imagine having the inner resourcefulness to GIVE that which you desire to RECEIVE. Today’s guided Mantra Meditation practice will help you tap into that essence of pure love within which naturally gives way to us starting to give that which we desire to receive...which then transcends the exchange of giving and receiving altogether and we simply BECOME it. This Mantra Meditation will help you EMBODY and BE the LOVE that you truly are, the love that is the core of your essence. Where conditional love says “I’ll love you if you do this for me, give that to me, act this way around me…” Unconditional Love says “I love you exactly as you are right now, in this moment, you don’t have to change a thing. I love and accept you fully.” What would your relationship be like with yourself if you loved yourself unconditionally? Practice this mantra and let me know how it goes. Aham Prema - The Essence of My Being is Pure Love Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope today’s episode nourished your soul and helped you feel more calm and at peace within. In this podcast, you can expect tried and true methods of inner transformation for your health, mindset, spiritual connection, relationships and living your purpose as well as deep honest, authentic conversations, education rooted in ancient wisdom as well as strategic actions and guided practices you can use right away to upgrade your wellbeing in every area of your life.

Power of Prayer Ep006
What do you do when life brings you to your knees and you’re in pain, confused, and don’t know what to do? I’ve been there so many times, and prayer has been my primary transformational practice.

In today’s episode, I will show you how you can heal your life and body as well as positively influence the lives of those you love. I will introduce you to a very simple, accessible way to cultivate your personal relationship with the divine so you can create a prayer practice that is all your own. You can create an individual relationship with God/Goddess, Source Energy, Beloved, Creator whatever feels most aligned and true for you. I’ll share with you some of my personal experiences of the power of prayer through inspiring stories and also guide you through an easy and deeply transformational prayer practice that I’ve used during times of my deepest challenges, sadness, heartbreak, panic, anxiety, and insomnia. Prayer has been my #1 go-to when I couldn’t find the answers to my own physical health ailments as well as confusion around my life’s purpose, painful endings of relationships, and various pivotal points in my life. It’s also been an enriching regular daily gratitude practice that helps me cultivate an intimate relationship with the divine allowing me get into the flow and trust my own inner guidance to inspire the next step on my path.

Emotional Intelligence Ep005
E-motion is energy in motion  When you repress an emotion, you stop the energy movement dead in its tracks and it clogs the pathways to health and freedom. What do you do when you feel sad, depressed, frustrated, angry, or fearful?  Do you avoid it? Try to cheer yourself up?  Do you, or others, make you feel wrong or bad for feeling a certain way? What if you didn’t have to feel or be a certain way in order to be loved and accepted?  Would that lift a weight off your shoulders? Repressing emotion causes dis-ease in the body.  Releasing emotion, feeling emotion, and expressing emotion in a healthy way creates room for healing.   Our society puts so much emphasis on how smart or intelligent we are - the IQ. If you’re getting good grades, achieving high “success” and reaching some exalted pedestal state that is worthy of your striving, you are celebrated. But this creates a major imbalance between the mind and emotions. Instead, when you boost your EQ, you’ll be able to harmonize with your mind and live a more authentic, connected, deliberate life, bring your gifts to the world without burning out, reduce conflict in our relationships. When your emotions are blocked or repressed, it wreaks havoc in your life and body. Today we’ll dive into the Ayurvedic perspective on emotions and emotional stagnation, how that affects your physiology, how that influences your stress patterns, and negatively impacts your health. It also negatively impacts your mind, preventing you from having clear communication, you end up feeling frustrated, stuck, and stagnant in your work, relationships, not knowing what is true to you. These emotions act as veils to us seeing what is most aligned and supportive for us. So we’ll peel back some of those layers today so you can understand how to transform negative emotions and how to tangibly create inner peace and optimize your health on all levels through this medium of increasing your EQ. Finally, I’ll walk you through a simple 4 step process to transform negative emotions so you can experience more inner freedom. Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope today’s episode nourished your soul and helped you feel more calm and at peace within. In this podcast, you can expect tried and true methods of inner transformation for your health, mindset, spiritual connection, relationships and living your purpose as well as deep honest, authentic conversations, education rooted in ancient wisdom as well as strategic actions and guided practices you can use right away to upgrade your wellbeing in every area of your life.

My First Mystical Experience Ep003
How would it feel to be so guided, so connected to an energy greater than yourself that your every word, thought, action, and movement was animated by the higher forces that created the universe? This episode will help you awaken a deep sense of gratitude, reverence, and awe in your life and help you discover what’s possible when you can tap into divine grace and energy in your day to day existence. This experience was a mystical awakening that served as a major turning point in my life. It is a beautiful story and a pretty vulnerable share - I’m surprised I’m airing this so soon on the podcast! After we wrap up storytime, I'll guide you through a short practice as well. In the past, mystical experiences seem to have been “reserved” for saints, gurus, and enlightened masters. But today, we can all experience “mystical experiences” by quieting our mind, through spiritual surrender, through mantra repetition, immersive time in nature, by applying the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, and through the methods and teachings that I’m sharing with you here on the Peaceful Soul Podcast. Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope today’s episode + guided practice nourished your soul and helped you feel more calm and at peace within. In this podcast, you can expect tried and true methods of inner transformation for your health, mindset, spiritual connection, relationships and living your purpose as well as deep honest, authentic conversations, education rooted in ancient wisdom as well as strategic actions and guided practices you can use right away to upgrade your wellbeing in every area of your life.

Mantra Meditation - Yoga For Your Mind Ep004
Todays’ episode will guide you through one of my favorite practices - Mantra Meditation. You’ll receive insight around the science of this form of meditation and a fully immersed guided practice so that you can experience it for yourself. The mantra for today helps you to invoke more Sat (Truth) Chid (Consciousness) Ananda (Bliss) into your life and awaken it in your body. It’s the fully saturated embodied experience of mantra meditation that is so transformative and uplifting. Mantra meditation takes spiritual intellectual concepts and helps you perceive them directly in your body so you feel it and know these higher divine truths in your every cell. There are so many forms of meditation, and so many mantras to meditate with, today I’ll share with you one strong practice, along with harmonium, that has helped me drop into deep states of stillness, peace, and insight to the questions I seek.  Connect with your Truth, Awaken your Consciousness, experience Bliss in your Body, and senses. Feel free to sing along while doing a walking meditation, doing the dishes, cleaning, or sit down in a comfortable position and focus fully on the mantra with me. “There are mantric sounds that can awaken the higher potentials of the brain and change the flow of energy in the nervous system. Each one of us has a unique sound pattern that sustains all that we do and allows our energies to move and grow or stagnate and decline. Unless we learn to harmonize our inner sound vibrations, our lives will likely remain in disharmony and suffering. Mantras provide focus, strength, plasticity, and adaptability to the mind, just as asanas do for the body. Mantras exercise our mental energy and give it poise and stability, just as asanas improve our physical condition.”- Dr. David Frawley Today’s Mantra Meditation - Anandamayi Chaitanyamayi Satyamayi Parame Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope today’s guided practice nourished your soul and helped you feel more calm and at peace within. In this podcast, you can expect tried and true methods of inner transformation for your health, mindset, spiritual connection, relationships and living your purpose as well as deep honest, authentic conversations, education rooted in ancient wisdom as well as strategic actions and guided practices you can use right away to upgrade your wellbeing in every area of your life.

Pillars of a Peaceful Soul Ep001
You can come back to the sanctuary of your soul at any moment to experience peace. So, why do we need these pillars? Why do we need to “work” at anything in order to have a “peaceful soul”? Simply put, we want to EXPERIENCE and LIVE FROM our peaceful soul. So, what would prevent us from experiencing that? 3 things. (1) Physical body/Health, (2) Mind/Emotions, (3) Daily Life.  (1) We want to cultivate a healthy physical container for your soul to express itself fully without being held back by pain suffering, disease, tension, and anxiety. We want to optimize all aspects of your health, vitality, and energy so you can effortlessly access the quiet calm peace of your soul.  (2) The nature of our mind is hardly peaceful! We’ll dive into the connection between your thoughts-feelings-emotions and how they can create a positive or negative feedback loop in your body. (3) Your daily life is made up of your purpose, work and contribution to others, your relationship with your loved ones, friends, family, with yourself, with the Universe/God, with the earth. So, we want to optimize the harmony you experience in all of these areas so you can live in the greatest alignment with the peace in your soul. Today’s episode will dive into an ancient Ayurvedic sutra (thread) of wisdom that uncovers the true definition of health and how we can experience a Self-realized, enriched existence by optimizing all of these areas. We’ll dive into dharma, your purpose, expressing your unique gifts, the beauty of mantra song meditation, the encoded potency of the Sanskrit language and I’ll guide you through a short meditation experience of the mantra with the threads of energy that weave consciousness into matter - the energy "codes" that literally weave the fabric of your very existence. Mantra for Healing (Definition of Health according to Ayurveda) Samadosha samagnischa samadhatumalakriyah Prasannatmendriyamanah svastha ityabadiyate Remember. Your soul is already at peace. We simply need to remove the barriers in our physical body, in our mind and in our life that prevent us from experiencing that peace within. In this podcast, you can expect tried and true methods of inner transformation for your health, mindset, spiritual connection, relationships and living your purpose as well as deep honest, authentic conversations, education rooted in ancient wisdom as well as strategic actions and guided practices you can use right away to upgrade your wellbeing in every area of your life.

Welcome to the Peaceful Soul Podcast Ep000
Your soul is already peaceful. The problem is that in our human lives we taste fleeting moments of that peace in our soul, but we haven't yet fully learned how to really live from that place a majority of the time. We oscillate back and forth from stress, anxiety, fear, problems, challenges, and turbulence and then sprinkle in moments of feeling trusting, safe, connected, open, free, and then back to being overwhelmed with doubt, fear, pain, struggle, and challenge. Some of the reasons for this constant ping pong game are rooted in our physical body and our health, some in our mind and the way we think about things, and some in the way that we are living our day to day life within our relationships, how we spend our time and how we structure our lives. In today’s episode, you’ll learn about my personal healing story, how I overcame debilitating health challenges, including gut imbalances, PTSD and anxiety as well as some of my major realizations from apprenticing with enlightened master healers in India and the US. My intention is to orient us on this Path of the Peaceful Soul and that my story will provide some hope and inspiration, no matter where you are on your journey.  We dive into ancient science, witnessing miracles in an Ayurveda clinic in India, being in humble service to others, awakening to your higher calling, living a path of purpose, cultivating inner freedom, and important distinctions where eastern philosophy meets modern western culture. You’ll see how Ayurveda (holistic medicine from India) is SO much more than nutrition, herbs, and gut health protocols and together we’ll dive into revealing the gift of the pandemic, creating the world we want to live in and navigating a personal and collective dark night of the soul.
